(1)  Stringing of template ID points along distinct horizontal and vertical alignments.
(2)  Superelevation "rules" such as maximum 7% grade break on the high-side super.
(3)  Subgrade slope design as distinct from surface grades, with special break-point rules.
(4)  Ability to associate profile grades with distinct template IDs.
(5)  Shifting of profile grade points in superelevation (e.g. to inside edge-of-pavement).
(6)  Parametric template design based on template ID logic (EP+2, SH-2).
(7)  Outslope treatments including shoulder expansion for guardrail, plus cut/fill conditional rules.
(8)  Precise subgrade surface DTM-generation including subgrade daylight point calculation.
